The Swiss Society of Women Artists in the Visual Arts, SGBK (die Schweizerische Gesellschaft Bildender Künstlerinnen). The Society was founded in 1902 and is divided into three sections: Basel (Basel-City/Basel-Country), Berne/Romandie and Zurich, and represents the established and alternative cultural scene. The SGBK brings women artists and their artistic work to the attention of the public.
The SGBK is a member of Suisseculture, the umbrella organisation of professional cultural workers in Switzerland. The Society also fights for the acceptance of diversity and equal opportunities in Switzerland.
The SGBK is a nationwide network for women artists and, simultaneously, a springboard for admission to other organisations.
As winner of the 2012 Equal Opportunities Award of the cantons of Basel-City and Basel-Country, the SGBK also contributes to recognising women artists among the broad public.City: Zurich
